PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – An Oregon developer serving a 10-year sentence because of a mortgage-fraud scheme has been sentenced to additional 46 months in prison for ordering his teenage son to shoot him in the legs in an effort to collect on a disability insurance policy.
U.S. District Judge Anna Brown described Shannon Egeland’s conduct as unthinkable and told him to work on his mental health while in the prison system.
In 2014, the day before he was to begin serving his 10-year sentence, Egeland reported that he had been shot after stopping to help a motorist in Idaho. It was later revealed that he directed his teenage son to shoot.
Egeland lost his left leg in the shooting. At Wednesday’s sentencing in Portland, he said the injury doesn’t bother him – what bothers him is the pain he caused his son.
